    Startup Fun Culture with perfect Professionalism and Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIts the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored.
    There will never be a lack of energy and fun
    There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    ConsDon't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work despite recent integration pain

    Middle Management (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsFlexible and entrepreneurial work environment. Lot's of potential to grow the business by putting together solutions from businesses acquired over the years but not yet fully integrated

    ConsHard to get paid well. Varying quality of senior management team. Culture clash between "lifers" and new young blood mostly brought in through acquisitions

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire on merit for senior positions and not just based on past loyalties

    At the cusp

    Sales (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCompany has a ton of assets. They just need to put them together, and get organized to take things to the next level.

    ConsThe game of fluffing the story up to make it sound better than it is goes up the chain so there is no focus on real problems. Too much spin. There also seems to be an affinity for hiring people that are under-achieving ivy league kids. Top of the pack get real jobs, and this company is clearly meant to succeed in a blue collar financial services way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house if someone is doing a poor job. Entitlement, and seniority should be cut off at inception.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The company is going swiftly downhill since S&P take over

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    ConsThe company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boring, mundane work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsRarely need to work overtime/weekends
    More freedom in terms of work hours than other jobs

    ConsBelow market value pay (given the hrs, it's fair though)
    Most development work is borderline data entry/content management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
